The Russian company Yota Devices showed us at the last Mobile World Congress the first signs of what they were developing, but, the second version of its smartphone Yotaphone is a different smartphone model by some convergence between mobile telephony and electronic ink.
With “Yotaphone 2” it sports two tight touchscreens, AMOLED on the front and a display of electronic ink on the back that remain always on. It is undoubtedly an innovative and unique design.
As it is a compact device, So, if we think or talking about a device with a diagonal screen size of 5-inches (4.7 inches if we think back electronic ink) then it will a perfect device.
The idea of combining a screen with e-ink technology with the LCD screen has been around the design departments of phone companies since the early days of the boom of e-readers with E-Ink, although in practice there has been no any real and commercial interest in this type of hybrid devices even in leading companies like HTC, Samsung, Apple and Motorola.
The new YotaPhone 2 is much, much nicer than the first generation of this device. As it has smooth curves on all sides, rounded corners and curved rear also. The main screen is the same size as the Nexus 5 sports. It also contains different sensors and speaker for calls in the front of the device, which is protected by Gorilla Glass 3.
However, the rear screen can do everything that makes the front using the option YotaMirror, but in black and white. There are also two modes: YotaCover, for privacy on that screen and YotaPanel, for functions and user experience. YotaCover allows us to select a wallpaper, it can also be an image of Facebook or Instagram, or feeds, showing at the bottom icons with shortcuts to the dialer, messages, email and notifications.
